Pieminster, a name often cited as leader of the Brit-pie revolution, has finally opened its doors in Nottingham, and not a day too soon as we celebrate National Pie Week! Hurrah!
Located at the former Boots store on Long Row, the space now offers a location in town for foodies to lap up the great pies, craft ales, ciders, cocktails and music on offer.
But it’s more than just another restaurant to co-owners Jon and Tristan, as Nottingham is the city that turned their pie dream into reality having met each other as students at Nottingham Trent University.
Simply staring at the selection of pies on offer makes your mouth water, with pioneering fillings such as Saag Pie-Neer (paneer cheese, garden peas, spinach, potato, chilli and mango-yum!)
As well as the traditional mash, gravy and minted peas there are also a section of more obscure sides including garden chilli peas, skin on chips and slaws alongside pigs in blankets (drool!) onion rings or halloumi cheese.
And if that weren’t enough, Pieminster even does sweet pies too. There are a range of Ice Cream pies including Toffee Apple, Lemon Meringue and Glastonbury Mud… trust me, you’ll definitely want to leave space for one.
When biting into the delicious pastry and filling it’s hard not to wonder what their secret is. Well, they’re made with free range British meat and, staying true to their Bristol roots, there are champion West Country ingredients on the menu.
Pieminster Nottingham is located at 57, Long Row, Nottingham and is open seven days a week.
